Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora said Tuesday the Lebanese army's victory over al-Qaida-inspired Islamic militants would help bring peace and security to the entire country. After meeting with Italian Premier Romano Prodi, Siniora also appealed for international help to rebuild the Palestinian refugee camp of Nahr el-Bared, which was destroyed during the three-month standoff with Fatah Islam that forced the camp's more than 30,000 refugees to flee. "This victory is going to contribute very positively and constructively to the level of peace and safety ... in all of Lebanon," Saniora said. "This war is not between the Lebanese and Palestinians, but against a group of terrorists."
